A few months ago Mohanlal became the cynosure of all eyes when he was raided by the Income tax department. Now, the Army Headquarters in New Delhi wants to take away the honorary title awarded to Mohanlal. The issue made it to the headlines when a retired officer of the army informed the officials that Mohanlal was using the title for commercial purposes. In an advertisement, Mohanlal apparently claimed that he was a war veteran.
However, the Indian Army is facing opposition from the ministry level. Defence Minister AK Antony, who was a former Chief Minister of Kerala thinks that the decision to revoke the honorary title from Mohanlal might lead to disappointment from the public.
Meanwhile, well known Malayalam author Sukumar Azhikode has questioned the government"s decision to appoint Mohanlal as brand ambassador of the Territorial Army as he has already been raided by the Income tax department.
